Our President & CEO had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with WSRE In Studio to discuss how our organization impacts the lives of youth across the country, and within the , Florida community.
We were joined by the Escambia County Sheriff's Office, as well as the Escambia County County Commission to discuss our local partnerships. We're especially proud of our U.S. Department of Labor grant in which we're helping youth gain valuable training and placed into jobs in the community.
Also joining the conversation was a board member of the local program, the Executive Director, and a young man who is successfully working his way through the program!

memorial to Judge Frank Orlando

Last week, we laid to rest our Founder, Judge Frank Orlando. Over 50 years ago he had a vision to help at-risk youth find a better path. Since then, he has advocated across the nation for meaningful change in the juvenile justice field. Because of his vision, more than 140,000 at-risk youth & their families have benefited from the services we provide. Thank you, Judge Orlando, for your passion and determination.
His family has asked that if you wish to honor his memory, please consider doing so by making a donation here: give.amikids.org/JudgeFrank

Because of Judge Orlando, hundreds of thousands of vulnerable youth and their families have benefited from our services, strengthening communities across the country. Rest in peace, Judge Orlando. You will live on in our hearts..
